This hanger has many uses. It is primarily for jackets, bath towels or gloves. It is finished with an oil spar varnish so it can be used for items that may be wet. The construction is very rugid so it can hold as much as fifty or more if anchored in the wall properly. We have also sold them in pairs to hold curtain rods for curtins or displaying quilts. We do also offer rods of the same motif.. The kit includes plugs of the same wood so the hardware is not visible.
